This powerful training and practice tool for safely simulating attacks and IT security incidents is now available in six West and Central African countries.
Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire – February 23, 2023
Sancfis Group has announced today that it has signed a contract to acquire the Thales Cyber Range. The Thales Cyber Range is a state-of-the-art virtual environment that allows IT security professionals to simulate their environments to detect vulnerabilities. On this dedicated, controlled and secure platform, users can simulate attacks and security incidents in a virtual environment that behaves like a complete IT network, including servers, workstations, routers, firewalls and other equipment.
Sancfis has therefore just acquired a powerful training tool that will help train the staff of companies and organisations, helping them to deal with the ever-increasing number and sophistication of IT security threats.
The Thales Cyber Range is a laboratory for simulating customer environments to detect vulnerabilities. It will be installed in six countries where the Sancfis Group already has a subsidiary: first in Côte d’Ivoire and Burkina, then in Cameroon, Ghana, Niger and Senegal.
“In an increasingly connected world, cybercrime is spreading everywhere and creates serious dangers for information systems, which have become vital in all areas of activity,” said Louis Diakité, Chairman of the Sancfis Group. “Indeed, all the products and services we offer aim to bring our customers greater productivity with maximum peace of mind. The signing of this contract illustrates our desire to provide high-quality training to help strengthen their position in IT security.
Thanks to its access to the Thales Cyber Range, Sancfis is now in a position to expand and improve its service offering in the field of IT security training.
This service will be available in 6 countries in West and Central Africa, where it will offer :
- Practical cybersecurity training, through the creation of real simulation laboratories of customer environments for the detection of vulnerabilities;
- A partnership with vocational schools and training centres for the practical application of the theoretical courses given to their students;
- Practical training for private and public sector staff;
- An introduction to cybersecurity governance for senior managers.
The Group also plans to sign framework contracts with multinational or governmental institutions for the training of their staff in cyber security.
